The residents of Avenue de Flandre and Place Stalingrad (19th century) in Paris experience hell every day. Those who live in the heart of a drug hub regularly film the dealers and consumers of crack who post at the foot of their buildings for their business. So Friday May 21, like every evening, a woman films the street from her balcony. But around 12:30 am, the spectacle becomes even more horrible than that of the other evenings.
It is a scene of rape reported this time by the images of the video. Under the windows of the houses, a woman shouts, begging someone to call the police. What is quickly done by the residents. A few minutes later, the police intervene. The alleged rapist is arrested, and the victim is taken into care. Both would be drug addicts, as reported by Le Parisien. “An investigation has been opened of the counts of rape by person in a state of intoxication and drug trafficking,” confirmed the Paris prosecutor’s office during the weekend.
“It was a very short scene, but incredibly violent”
Deborah, one of the residents, is still in shock. “It was a very short scene, but of incredible violence”, she confides in the columns of the Parisian. “We are used to fights, tense situations, there was recently the mortar fire, but this is the first time that we have seen this! As a woman, and having myself already been assaulted a Once in the neighborhood, it’s very hard to see such a thing. I keep thinking about this victim. ” The direct witnesses of the rape were interviewed by the police, and their video is still running on social networks. The goal ? Not to film to create the buzz, but to film to show the reality of what they live on a daily basis with the impression of not being listened to.
